At EGPAF’s offices in Washington, D.C., memories of Elizabeth Glaser are everywhere you look.
We’ve been gratified this week to see that Elizabeth and her impact on HIV and mothers and children has also been memorialized several times at the International AIDS Conference.
On Wednesday, Dr. Joseph Essombo, Country Director for EGPAF in Cote d’Ivoire, paid tribute to Elizabeth during his remarks at the Opening Plenary.
“Sometimes in life, there is that moment when it’s possible to make a change for the better. This is one of those moments,” he said.
“This statement is not from me. This statement is from Elizabeth Glaser, 20 years ago addressing the Democratic Convention in the U.S. It was true 20 years ago, but it’s so real and so true today.”
